That sounds like a interesting deployment. Do you have any photos?
You are powering the Danley subs with the Crest amps as well?
Is the MaxxBass the hardware unit or a plug in?
I have the MaxxBCL hardware and it is truly a ďmagic boxĒ.
Since it essentially doubles the perceived output of your subs in two rack spaces, it is a money and space saver. How much money and space would it take to double your TH118XLs?
TH118XLs are on a Behringer Inuke 12,000 DSP. MaxxBass hardware. I did not use them on the Danleyís. Tried it on my old TH115 system and it wasnít very helpful. Iím going to be putting an Aphex Dominator II in the chain and experimenting. I have lots of experience with the Compellor/Dominator combo as well from years of club work on small systems tweaked to within an inch of their life. Itís a cool
Sounding analog mastering setup.

Interesting. My subs are front loaded 18" and the MaxxBCL works great with them. Maybe the Waves processing doesn't work well with the tapped horn.
Why does the forum show you as a one star newbie? You've been on this forum for as long as I can remember.

The Maxxbass works best with reflex boxes because it generates harmonics that are heard better with speakers you can see!! I have even used it with Lab subs and it does its thing...just not as obviously.

So you mean it works best with speakers with more distortion--------------------

Exactly! Any box with the speaker NOT front facing obviously lowers distortion out front in a good design.
My club system depends on the Maxxbass. Usually running the whole PA, monitors and band on one circuit. Luckily my reference for low frequencies came from TH115ís and TH215ís...so Iím pretty good at Ďfakingí a facsimile when necessary under limited circumstances! Also have a Danley sub in my mastering setup in the studio, and 6 Lab Subs in my installed system. Hardest part for newbies is getting a reference on real low end and how to use it musically.

Just to clarify - are you guys using the MaxxBCL or are you hosting the Maxxbass plugin in your live rig? And if the latter, how are you hosting the software?

Iím using the hardware unit. AES out of mixer into AES input of the MaxxBCL.

That's what I was guessing. Sadly the MaxxBCL is no longer produced, so looks like software is the only option. The thought of running an entire show off a laptop gives me pause. I've used laptops for synths, lights, special processing on a channel or two, backing tracks, but never for the full FOH. It's one thing to have backing tracks or a synth fail...quite something else to have the entire sound system go down due to a computer issue.

Why wouldn't you use it as an insert that can be bypassed in the event of a failure?

  Debbie;

  How is the new system? Still going out with it? Haven't heard much and was wondering how you like it now that you've had it for awhile. Hoping to see some pictures and video's.

     Kindest regards;
